Bogler Drinking Vessel in Sky Blue and Raspberry Red
A Colourful Remake.
This arresting goblet marks the transition from a handmade object to a piece of handicraft. This is a return engagement of sorts for the ceramic workshop in the Maria Laach monastery because the original was designed by Theodor Bogler, who directed the workshop until 1968. He was Bauhaus trained and brought with him the Bauhaus design vocabulary when he entered the monastery's workshop: this model is probably from the early 1960s. It displays simple proportions, but with the added touch of a reduced foot and agreeable shape, it makes for a very serviceable vessel. It's good for water, juice, buttermilk, tea and many other beverages. It holds almost 400 ml, and with its good insulation, it is suitable for hot or cold drinks. But in addition to its admirable functionality, the colour scheme is notable: on the outside, it shows a glaze in sky blue, like passing clouds, inside it is glazed in raspberry red and iridescent on the edges. It's a joy to look at and to contemplate its colour gradient – it may inspire to let the thoughts wander off in a daydream. The vessel is a true ornament and the proof for the stylistic confidence of Theodor Bogler.
Ceramics from Maria Laach
The production of ceramic objects has a long tradition in the Benediktinerabtei Maria Laach in the Eifel. In any case, the monastery is located in a region that has been known for this craft for centuries. In Maria Laach in particular, it experienced a new heyday in the early 20th century thanks to the Bauhaus-trained monk Theodor Bogler. After the ceramics workshop had only a shadowy existence, it was reopened a few years ago. Currently it is managed by Br. Stephan. The master ceramist Gabi Schöneberger and the porcelain painter Andrea Lange work with him. Both classically at the wheel and in the casting process, which Bogler established, is worked again today.
This product is an example of genuine handicraft; therefore, minor deviations in size and colour may occur.
